Over the past few months, the Itergy team has written about many important considerations in the effective management of Active Directory, including configuration, disaster recovery, and compliance. This post provides one more consideration and suggests steps you can take to protect, maintain, and manage your AD.
I don’t think our previous posts provided any revolutionary ideas. It wasn’t our goal to do so. Instead, we wanted those posts to get you thinking about AD again. Among a plethora of burning fires and pressing projects, it’s easy to forget about AD. And therein lies the problem: You forget about AD. No one manages or maintains it like it needs to be. No one cleans it up. No one tunes the replication. No one checks the backup or attempts a practice restore.
And then it all goes wrong.
Yes, I am going to plug Itergy’s services here! We specialize in running Active Directory. We specialize in managing Active Directory. We specialize in securing Active Directory. Essentially, we specialize in doing all the things for Active Directory that you don’t have the time or resources to do.
